"Let them be little"

This week's I Heart Faces challenge is "Let them be little".  I was excited when I heard about this challenge because I knew somewhere in my many many pictures that I take of kids that I would have a winning gem.  Maybe.  But ultimately I decided I wanted to enter a picture of my daughter and this picture would not leave my mind.  While it's not technically perfect, it represents a day that I remember well.  It was one of those frustrating days as a mother.  Every time I cleaned up a space, she would be there making another mess.  She was extremely whiny, and threw a tantrum about everything.  I was at my breaking point when I hear "Wook, Mom!" and I turn to see this:

It was at that moment that I burst into laughter.  She was so proud of herself for putting on makeup!  I could have screamed at her, I could have put her in time out, but at that moment I decided to just let her be little.

I love being a mom!

Rucker Family

This is the Rucker Family. They took me to the coolest location to take their pictures. This Granpda's house/farm. It was so beautiful! There were so many cool places to take pictures, I could have taken pictures there all day. I filled up my memory card very quickly, and actually had to keep erasing images to be able to take more. They are such an adorable family, and I'm so glad I was able to take their pictures.

Katie's Kreations (part two!)

Here is the second part of the Katie's Kreation shoot. I love that she chose to model her products herself! She is so beautiful! She also brought along her daughter and we got some gorgeous mother daughter shots as well. Excuse the large share on this, this has got to be one of my favorite sessions! And just look at this location! Stunning!

Katie's Kreations

You may have noticed the cute newborn headbands in the previous posts.  They are made by my good friend Katie, and she was an online store, Katie's Kreations.  Yesterday we rounded up some super cute models and took pictures of the adorable accesories she sells.
